Many sufferers of hemorrhoids will not follow up their case of hemorrhoids until they are in a lot of discomfort, or are displaying serious symptoms – bloodloss is such a symptom. Bloodloss is indicative of a worsening condition, but it’s in your best interests never to get to this point. This piece will explore the symptoms of bleeding hemorrhoids. (This is a common spelling but it should really be spelt ‘Bleeding Hemorrhoids’). Blood loss is started by internal and external hemorrhoids alike. But what really creates this frustrating condition?
See below, for the the different symptoms leading up to blood loss:
The Different Faces of Piles/Notes:
- Hemorrhoids spring to life generally as a result of your lifestyle – your eating choices, your daily activities and your general health. All of these factors culminate in the strain that is placed on your varicose veins – examples could be recently giving birth, your diet, your weight and whether your suffer from bowel problems (constipation).
- These elements cause the veins to swell and grow into hemorrhoids – Can be either internal or external
- With unrelenting pressure the vein expands so much that after forming into a hemorrhoid, it can’t do anything but effectively ‘explode,’ thereby starting to bleed and become sore.
Most often, piles can be healed far before the point of bleeding. However, what can you do if you realise you have hemorrhoids after you begin bleeding? If you are that person don’t be too concerned. Early symptoms of hemorrhoids can easily be mistaken as other concerns. 9 times out of 10, you’ll be surprised to discover that hemorrhoids ‘lurk in the dark’ before letting you know they are there – usually with a jolt of pain. And if you’re someone who quietly knew there was something not quite right but didn’t have the courage to confront your doctor, also don’t worry.

Kegel exercises have been gaining in popularity as they build the muscles around the pelvic area. This leads to better urine retention and wards off hemorrhoids.
- Lastly, eat your fiber!
- Surgery – Surgery should always be the last option when it comes to curing hemorrhoids. For this article, surgery is too big of a topic to give it justice here.
- Creams/Ointments – These are often the first choice for people when they come down with hemorrhoids. Namely, because they are available over-the-counter and many don’t require a prescription from your physician. Once again, this topic is fairly large but you can find other articles online easily enough if you wish to explore further.
- Habitual Constipation – Constipation is a large factor for people suffering hemorrhoids. Over time the results can be compared to pregnancy, which I outline in just a minute. It boils down to excess physical stress.
- Giving Birth – As noted above, the culprit here is strain. There is always a lot of physical strain throughout child birth. However, Women have evolved to be able to cope with this kind of stress. But only up to a certain point. There are limits to what we can do and the birth of a child is one of natures challenges of putting us to the test.
- Little Exercise – I suspect that this is the main reason for people coming down with hemorrhoids in the first place. By the way, I’m not referring to that day you missed a trip to the track and field with friends. I would argue that unless you make daily exercise a part of your daily routine, it’s benefits will be wasted on you. Enjoy it! It can be a lifestyle you’ve designed at work or it can be a habit you’ve developed in going to the gym 5 times a week. Whatever it is, it’s so important exercise becomes a lifestyle for you, not just a one-off wonder.
- Bad Circulation – Bad circulation has more than one negative consequence. It causes pain in your fingers and toes, it slows down your reflexes, and your muscles deteriorate over time. Of course, poor blood circulation can also result in hemorrhoids but you can alleviate the issue with prescription drugs by seeing your physician.
- Drink more water
- Wear clothes with plenty of give
- Stand up every now and then if you are sitting down for long periods of time; especially on the toilet. Being on the lavatory for a long time puts more pressure on the rectal veins than normal sitting – this increases the chances for piles!
Symptoms That Lead To Rectal Bleeding:
- Veins (varicose) – Piles can be prompted by over-stressed varicose veins, as I’ve already explained.
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease – 1) Diverticulitis, the formation of intestinal pouches or pockets. 2) Colitis, pain and bleeding result from ulcers formed due to the eroding away of the rectal/colon wall.
- Celiac Disease – The small intestine is damaged leaving nutrient intake difficult.
- Fistulas – A fistula is an unusual relationship between two cell-lined vessels or organs that don’t normally connect. The best solution to these is to change your eating habits but see your doctor first is there are any issues.
- Fissures – These are deep furrows within the mucous membrane of the innermost intestinal lining.
- Polyps – These are potentially cancerous growths within the body.
- Prolapses – External hemorrhoids and prolapses are one and the same. The varicose vein becomes set under so much strain it’s retraction is lost and it dips to a level where you can actually see it in the flesh.
I won’t be looking farther into these but if they concern you, a quick search on Google will find a wealth of helpful guidance. If you are on concerned with piles, however, focus your energies on varicose veins and prolapses alone. The best course of action for bleeding of an unknown kind is to see your doctor first and foremost.
